It’s noon on the first football Saturday of 2013 in Ann Arbor and Hill Street is alive with the sound of tailgate.
Adapted from a recent online discussion.
As a woman who has struggled with my weight most of my life, I'd like to offer a little perspective on a past column about hearing "svelte" friends complain about their weight (http://wapo.st/10NppvW).
I have several friends who were always thin and have gained weight as they've gotten older. To me, who until recently was close to 300 pounds, I think they look great.
But when they're used to being a certain size and that is no longer their reality, it's understandably bothersome. I also have a few friends who are thin but just want to drop those last five or 10 pounds. It's all in what we're comfortable with.
Yes, some women have unhealthy body images, but just because you may be overweight doesn't mean thinner people aren't allowed to moan about wanting to cut back, too.

Events both unexpected and inevitable can be turned to your advantage in the year ahead. Your ability to make the best out of what you are given will greatly help your financial or career prospects. Opportunities will come from those you have worked or played with in the past.
I'm 24 and a college graduate. My boyfriend, "Jordan," and I have been together for a year and we would like to get married. However, my parents are against the idea. They love Jordan, but they think marriage is stupid because, in 2013, "Who is getting married?"
I think this is totally ridiculous, but I don't know what to do. I want to be married and I would love my parents' approval, but it's hard when they call me stupid for wanting to take that step just because their marriage didn't work out.
I love Jordan and I love my parents. Should I have to choose between the two? -- TOTALLY TORN
Patrick Record | AnnArbor.comOn paper, Ypsilanti Community School’s loss on Friday to Saline will only go down as a one-touchdown loss. But to anyone who witnessed the Hornets build a 30-point lead before the fourth quarter began, it was pretty obvious that Saline had Ypsilanti outmatched at nearly every position.
The Lincoln High School football team improved to 2-0 on the season on Friday night while Huron fell to 1-1 when the Railsplitters beat the River Rats, 46-14.
University of Michigan students and fans gathered on the Diag for a pep rally Friday night ahead of the Wolverines' game against Notre Dame Saturday.
They heard from Head Coach Brady Hoke, U-M president Mary Sue Coleman and football players and they were treated to a performance by former Michigan Student and "Glee" star Darren Criss.

The Saline football team built up a 30-point lead over Ypsilanti Community High School on Friday in the first three quarters. Ypsilanti scored 22 points in the fourth quarter, but it proved too little too late for the Grizzlies as the Hornets won 37-29.
